iSoftBet allow you to travel back in time in their latest gaming release. This sleek online slot game features brilliant graphics and so many different ways to trigger wins. There are free spins and even respins waiting to cross your palm with silver. Will you be able to venture back in time and bring back your fortune?
Based on Alexander the Great, who served as the king of Macedonia from 336 to 323 BC. At just 20 years old, Alexander spent years on a military campaign to create one of the largest empires of the ancient world – which stretched from Greece to deepest India. He conquered many countries and on his voyage to reach the ends of the world, he became homesick (whilst invading India in 326 BC) and this is what the Sword of Alexander is based on. As you progress through the game, you virtually travel countries trying to battle and make your fortune.
You will come across many different symbols as you play, including the standard 10, J, Q, K, A and items referring to the game itself, such as helmets, ships, globes, the king himself, a lady, shields and more. There are five low paying symbols and seven medium to high paying symbols. To be honest, it’s a basic game and the scatter and wild symbols hold no value of their own – you can win just as much in the base game as you can in the bonus – which is disappointing. The paytable holds no clues as to what you can win with free spins or how many you can win.
You can test the game in demo mode first, to get used to its various modes and features. Whilst playing the game you will come across the following:
- Respin feature – if you can spin in a win by getting 3,4 or 5 of kind images on active paylines, the respin feature will take place. The non-winning symbols will be replaced with a new set of symbols whilst the winning symbols remain locked in place. If you can spin in new wins with the respin feature, you will get an enhanced winning combo and maybe even more respins and greater multipliers – which result in bigger wins.
- Wilds – the globe is the wild symbol and doesn’t have a value in itself, it is used to create other wins on the reels.
- Free spin bonus – Alexander the Great is the scatter symbol and if you can get three of these on your reels you will get the free spin bonus feature awarded. The amount of spins offered isn’t stipulated and changes from one spin to the next.
